I am an old retired hermit. I was an archaeologist for a long time and an anthropology professor for over 20 years. These days, my interests include reading, nutritional biochemistry, West African history, and ethnoarchaeology. I live in an isolated part of the Oregon (USA) coast within view of the Pacific Ocean. As you can see from my flickr "favorites" I like food and cats.
